Skin Cancer Screening
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. In fact, at least one in five Americans will develop skin cancer by age 70. While skin cancer may be common, it’s also highly treatable with early detection and regular skin cancer screenings.
At Academic Alliance in Dermatology, we are proud to offer full-body skin exams that give our patients the peace of mind they deserve. Our experienced team of dermatologists and specially trained physician assistants use sophisticated technology to identify skin cancer and precancerous lesions early.
We are committed to providing compassionate care and staying at the forefront of skin cancer research, treatment, and prevention.
Your Skin Cancer Screening Appointment
When you choose Academic Alliance in Dermatology for your annual skin exam, you can expect to receive high-quality care tailored to your unique needs. During your appointment, your provider will:
- Conduct a full-body skin examination from your head to your toes, paying particular attention to frequently sun-exposed areas such as your scalp, face, neck, arms, and legs
- Assess any moles, lesions, spots, or discoloration for signs of skin cancer
- Perform biopsies of any suspicious areas and submit them to a state-of-the-art laboratory for testing
After your examination, your provider may recommend lifestyle changes to help reduce your risk for skin cancer, such as applying sunscreen daily and avoiding sun exposure.
Additionally, you may be asked to return for follow-up visits so your provider can track any changes to your skin or address any skin cancer concerns.

Mohs Skin Cancer Treatment
In addition to full-body skin exams, we also offer advanced treatments for skin cancer, including Mohs micrographic surgery. This procedure removes cancerous tissue layer by layer to ensure all cancer cells are removed while leaving healthy tissue intact. Mohs surgery provides the most aesthetically pleasing results without compromising your health.
